A stunning new collection of brush drawn florals and co-ordinates on silk, linen, cotton and wide width wallpaper.

Drawn in 1948 by the legendary Sir Cecil Beaton and commissioned by Zika Ascher for use in his contemporary collection of haute couture textiles, these strikingly fresh designs and their zesty, spontaneous check and stripe co-ordinates bring the worlds of fine art and couture fashion to the interiors market.

Sir Cecil Beaton (1904-1980) Cecil Beatons contribution to 20th century art and design is unequalled. He dressed the stars of stage and screen with style and originality, photographed them artfully in his creations and wrote about them candidly in his memoirs. Tireless determined, his prolific creative career spanned 60 years, always at the peak of the art and design establishment. His lends captured the greatest names in every field with an uncanny sense of composition and insight. His stage designs were unparalleled for Hollywood productions such as "Gigi' and 'My Fair Lady' for which he also won Best Costume Design Oscars. Beatons artwork is also uniquely recognizable – bold, chic with fluid spontaneous brush strokes – and still just as fresh and relevant to contemporary design today.
